Defining Urban Growth: A Recap

Urban growth isn’t just a property issue – it is a water issue. As more people move to cities like Las Vegas, the strain on the Colorado River’s limited water resources becomes more apparent while drought conditions grow more severe. As desert cities continue to expand, sustainable and equitable management is desperately needed. 

On June 1, 2022, Great Basin Water Network hosted a panel presentation to showcase what sustainable growth can look like. This panel discussion focused on how future land-use policies can ensure a more sustainable and inclusive future while building wealth and protecting the limited water supply.

The panel included a presentation from Joe Minicozzi, the founder and principal of Urban3, an economics consulting firm through GeoAccounting. The firm is a leader in visualizing financial productivity by using 3D modeling software and designers that communicate the impact of public policy and land use through infographics. 

Clark County Commissioners Tick Segerblom and William McCurdy II, Assemblyman Howard Watts, and several local non-profits also joined to share their unique perspectives.
